I finally got around to upgrading my desktop from Backtrack 5R3 to the latest Kali Linux. After about two weeks, I finally set out to get the ati graphics card working so I could do some password cracking. This turned into fun as the version of fglrx-drivers don’t support my 4500 series graphics card. The fglrx-drivers-legacy don’t exist in the kali or debian repo’s. Trying to install from the ati legacy drivers bundle failed. Here is how I got it working using debian packages:
Glastopf is a web application honeypot which emulates thousands of vulnerabilities to gather data from attacks targeting web applications. The principle behind it is very simple: Reply the correct response to the attacker exploiting the web application.
This article is mostly to cover the installation, setup, usage, etc
Credit where credit is due….The bulk of this article was obtained from the excellent article located here: http://www.xors.me/?p=4458
I found the original article and then modified it to fit my operating system and environment. It has been modified to work with Backtrack Linux installation using native virtualbox-4.1 installation
To provide some background, Cuckoo Sandbox performs automated malware analysis using system virtualization technologies. At a high level, Cuckoo executes Python scripts, which then spawn a VirtualBox Virtual Machines (VM) environment running a Guest OS (ie. Windows XP), to execute and analyze malware code in a controlled environment. Once the Guest OS launches, VirtualBox uses local shares to access Python scripts located on the Host OS (ie. Ubuntu/Backtrack). Python therefore needs to be installed on both the Guest and Host OS environments for this product to work. Within the Guest OS, youwill also need vulnerable applications to help analyze code, by forcing malware binary or malicious URLs execution. As the installation documentation provided with Cuckoo Sandbox is missing a few requirements, this post will show a user how to perform a functional install of Cuckoo Sandbox.

I really like the looks of hotot twitter client for linux, but it doesn’t support multiple twitter accounts in the same process (however, you can open multiple running instances of hotot and use it that way). It does support lists.
When I reviewed memcached previously, I got faster performance with wp-cache than memcached…..but that was about 16 months ago. So I decided to give it another run for the money on a few sites. The installation is pretty simple….especially since I scripted most of it for you…..
Lets face it, John the Ripper has been around a long time and the reason its been around a long time is because its damn good at cracking passwords. Yea, hashcat and oclhashcat are great for gpu cracking, but it doesn’t support as many algorithms as JTR. So, imagine my surprise when I fire up John The Ripper on backtrack 5 64 bit and find out it is using a single CPU. That is letting a potential 75% of my system sit there wanting to do something. Luckily the fix is easier than fixing a sandwich.
So backtrack 5 still using the older openvas-2 series and I actually like the newer version. So here are the instructions on getting the latest version installed. This will install these versions: openvas libraries 4.0.5-1; openvas scanner 3.2.4-1; openvas client 3.0; openvas manager 2.0.4-1; openvas admin 1.1.1-1; gsa 2.0.1-1; gsd 1.2.0-1; openvas cli 1.1.2-1 as packaged by the opensuse build service.
NOTE: June 23, 2011 — if the version numbers have changed, you can browse the repository address and update this document accordingly. Also, yes, this does work on my bt5 install on three different systems. I am installing on a 4th system now and will update the steps because I think I may have left 1 or 2 out.
